If someone else is surprised by the flagship smartphoneHuawei P20 Pro with three main cameras, we hurry to warn you - soon every self-respecting manufacturer will launch a cameraphone with a large number of lenses on the one side of the case. The first was Samsung with its non-top “four-eyed device” Galaxy A9 (2018).
The main camera of the novelty contains 4 modules, andIt is located in the upper left corner, like the iPhone. The first one (it’s the main one) at 24 megapixel with a f / 1.7 luminosity and OIS will be optimal when shooting at night or in low light, the second one at 5 megapixel with f / 2.2 optics is set for high-quality portrait shooting and the Live Focus function. For landscapes, there is an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor with an angle of coverage of 120 ° and f / 2.4, but without autofocus. The latter is a 10 megapixel telephoto lens with an aperture of f / 2.4 and 2x optical zoom. Support AI available. Selfie camera consists of a 24 megapixel sensor with f / 2.0 and face recognition function.
Externally, the Galaxy A9 (2018) is similar to the recentGalaxy A7 (2018) released. Its case is made of glass and metal, protection against water and dust according to IP68 is provided. 3.5 mm audio jack saved, which will be a weighty argument for purchase.
